Events Diary: Halloween

It was Halloween and gave Micky, the team and the community the opportunity to dress up and have some fun. We ahd a range of acitvities throughout the day, soemthing for everyone. Unfortunately at the start of the day the weather was quite unkind to us but we muddled through.

There was pumpkin carving for the kids who got stuck in with real gusto.

People managed to avoid the earlier showers and partook of drink from the bar and food from our BBQ.

The market stalls were spread throughout The Swan - in The Bar, The Coach House and underneath the shed in The Courtyard.

We had a fancy dress competition for all ages, the winners were announced at 7pm by Mark & Sherridan. Our worthy winners were Connor and Dawn who were absolutely excellent in their costumes and make-up.

In the evening we had live music from the fab duo, Mark & Sherridan. The lights were turned down low which created a spooky and appropriate atmosphere for Halloween.

The whole place was decked out with Halloween themed decorations. We even had smoke and a black cat too!
